SANCHEZ, Stephen Wilfred Steve
SANCHEZ, Stephen Wilfred 'Steve' Born to Wilfred and Betty (Grijalva) Sanchez on October 4, 1968 and was called to be with the Lord on August 7, 2014. Steve grew up in the cozy town of Pecos, N.M., where he enjoyed the beautiful mountainous area and graduated from Pecos High School in 1986. He then graduated from New Mexico State University in 1991 with a bachelor degree in Transportation and Logistics. It was at NMSU where he met his wife Shauna and became the proud father to Roshel. Steve then moved to Lancaster, California and embarked on a musical escapade, traveling worldwide as a security manager for the likes of: Tori Amos, Morrissey, Gloria Estefan, Alanis Morissette and Live. In 2003, he became a father again to a beautiful set of twins, Shyann and Roxion and began a new career in real estate. Steve enriched his family's life by becoming deeply involved in Desert Vineyard Church and lived out his faith by building homes for the less fortunate in Mexico. His heaven on earth was Parker, Arizona; it was here that Steve savored being on the river and cherished time with his friends and family. Steve had two passions in life, expressing his love for music (via playing the drums) and indulging in water sports on the Colorado River. He will forever be remembered and missed for his charismatic 'larger than life' personality, big heart and infectious laughter that brought joy to every atmosphere. Steve is preceded in death by his father Wilfred, grandparents Willie and Josephine Grijalva and Gillie and Emma Sanchez. He is survived by his wife Shauna; daughters, Roshel, Shyann and Roxion; mother, Betty, sister, Joey (Michael Fabsits) and their two children Wil and Raelen, as well as his two river brothers, Albert Sanchez and Michael Smith. A Celebration of Live will be held at 5 pm, Oct. 3, 2014 at Desert Vineyard Church, Lancaster
